Backwoods Paddlesports

The Trinity is the longest river entirely contained within the state of Texas. You can explore the city's main waterway via self-propelled navigation thanks to vendors like Backwoods Paddlesports who offer kayak, canoe and paddleboard rentals on sunny days or launch your excursion from several locations along the river.

A special thanks to the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) for making river recreation a priority in addition to maintaining the Trinity Trails and riverside entertainment events.

 

If you're looking to explore the river with your own kayak or canoe, there are seven self-launch locations in Fort Worth. In East Fort Worth, go just north of I-30 on Beach Street and park in the Rowing Club lot to access the launch site near Gateway Park. Head west to access the remainder of sites: two at Panther Island Pavilion, two off Trinity Park, one near Woodshed Smokehouse and one at the White Settlement Trailhead. View the image above for more info.

That's right! As of April 1st,we will be operating 7 days/week. With the extended hours come our new weekday rates of $12.00/hour for adults and $8.00/hour for kids 12 years of age and under. These weekday prices are valid Monday-Thursday.

But wait… there's more! We are introducing two new weekday discounts! "1/2 Off Humpday" will offer ½ price watercraft rentals ALL DAY, EVERY WEDNESDAY. This discount is good for kids, adults and all watercraft types.

Hey TCU students, we thought of you too! Thursday at Backwoods Paddlesports will now be "Student Thursdays". Take advantage of $5.00 off your watercraft rental with ANY valid student ID. *One discount per ID*

We are super excited to be operating every day and we hope you are too! As a reminder, we are open 10am-7pm, with the last rentals sent out at 6pm each day. Happy paddling! WEBSITE
